The Safe Sport Taskforce was formed under CoachSG, a division under the Singapore Sport Institute, in 2018 to look into promoting of values and best practices of Safe Sport, safeguarding athletes, participants and officials and protecting the integrity of sport and sports organisations.
Safe Sport Commission established
Sport Singapore established the Safe Sport Commission in 2019 as advisory panel to drive effective implementation of Safe Sport initiatives and policies. Under its guidance, the Safe Sport Taskforce began to lay the foundations for the Safe Sport Programme such as
- creating a curriculum and training safeguarding officers within the National Sports Associations
- developing the Safe Sport awareness education modules and advocacy materials
- establishing a reporting protocol for major games
A New Chapter
In 2021, the Safe Sport Commission pivoted from its advisory role to one that maintains a secretariat to perform the necessary functions to administer the Safe Sport Programme.
Today, the Safe Sport Commission’s secretariat performs 3 key functions:
Policy & Advocacy
